Since forming the Retired Boxers Foundation in 1995, proudly serving as the non-profit organization’s president since day one, Alex Ramos has devoted his life to helping his fellow retired boxers in need. Hundreds of phone calls each year come into the home of former USBA middleweight champion Alex Ramos. Most are from current or retired boxers that have fallen on hard times.
Many of these calls from Alex’s boxing brothers can’t or won’t even be followed up with a “thank-you” call after receiving that much desired help, yet one thing is for sure…all these calls will be answered.
Now Alex Ramos has fallen ill, and needs our prayers.
